Profotos Member Biography - Alexander Stepanov

I was born in Kiev, Ukraine – a nice place to become an artist. When I was a child, I dreamt of being an astronomer. I loved drawing, history, and playing soccer.

When I was about 30 years old, my scopes turned to photography. I felt of my camera as if part of my body. I was gripped by the camera’s seemingly magical abilities to create pictures and documentaries instantly. My main subject was people.

Much later, while living in Canada, I moved to the world of digital photography. I understood that a computer is a very useful and powerful tool, which would help me realize my creative potential as well as raising my imaginative capabilities to a higher level than possible with traditional photography.

Currently, the original photos I take are very basic, skeleton, dim ideas, which after many hours and days of a hard but interesting modification job, transform into very different-looking pictures. Bright, emotional pieces of art with exhilarating moods can be achieved from poor, dull photos, by harnessing the power of a computer.

These days, 25 years later, taking photos and editing images still remains a magical procedure for me.

In the last few years, my interests have gotten wider. They are currently Fine Art, Digital Creation, Nature, Abstract, Models, Advertising, Stock Photography, and Exhibits.

I took part in solo and group participation in photo exhibitions in Ukraine, Canada, USA, and France. I have won local and international photo contests.

In 1993-1995 I participated as a photographer in a Canadian project for Children of Chernobyl, "Help us help the Children."

My pictures are located in private collections in USA, Canada, Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Holland, France, Switzerland, Norway, Japan, South Africa, and Uruguay, and have been published in various papers and magazines in Ukraine and Moscow, Germany, France, and Canada.

I now work as a part time freelance photographer in a home based studio in Toronto.
